DIG · Development In Gardening

Development In Gardening's projects enable vulnerable and HIV-affected communities to meet their own needs and improve their well-being through nutrition-sensitive and sustainable agriculture.

DIG's Objectives
• Improve the health of individuals through gardens designed to meet specific nutritional needs
• Work with participants to build agricultural skills necessary to develop and maintain diverse, sustainable gardens
• Build the capacity of gardeners as local resources for information, education, and replication
• Promote Gender Equity at both the household and community level
• Link nutrition, gardening, and health
• Enhance community's food security and livelihoods

DIG's Core Values
• We believe access to nutritious food is a basic human right and can be life-saving, especially for vulnerable populations living in poverty and fighting life-threatening diseases such as HIV.
• We use a grassroots approach in working with communities to influence local policy and protect development achievements.
• We rigorously promote environmentally, economically, culturally, and educationally appropriate responses to barriers preventing equality of opportunities.
• We respond to diversities and promote inclusiveness, particularly highlighting the potential of women and girls, and of people living with HIV, people living with disabilities and other vulnerable groups.
• We promote gender equity as a fundamental human right.
• We partner with a broad range of organizations (local and international, civil and government, urban and rural, faith-based and secular).
• We promote, support and transfer environmentally restorative strategies resulting in climate-resilient practices.
• We engage in collaborative approaches that build on the unique circumstances of the local context to facilitate full local project ownership.
